We are incredibly pleased to announce that Michael Holmes (Automotive Insight, AIT Apprentice) and James Trachy (Robson Brothers 4WD, AIT Apprentice) have been recognised as finalists in the Capricorn Rising Star Awards. This is an incredible achievement, given the shortlist was limited to 5 candidates across Australia & New Zealand from an original list of 500 candidates. 

The National Centre for Vocational Research (NCVER) last week reported Automotive Trade and Engineer completion rates for those due to complete in 2017 (commenced in 2013). The MTA WA are proud to announce that our Automotive Institute of Technology ‘completion rates’ exceeds the national rate by approximately 20%. This phenomenal result is most likely due to the relationship that the AIT develops with Employers and Apprentices alike, with positive testimonials being received on a weekly basis.
